That’s why we built Realm.
No need to cobble together biased, anecdotal advice from local experts and friends any longer. Our platform gives you the accurate data you need to make smarter home investments.
If you’re like most homeowners, you have a never-ending list of upgrades, renovations, and repairs to tackle. It can be hard to know where to start! Our property-specific ROI estimates will give you the data you need to feel confident with your decision.
Collecting 3 quotes from vendors for each project is a lot of work and you still might end up overpaying. Our cost estimates use local labor & materials to give you an accurate sense of a reasonable price for completing a project in your area. Plus, you can customize the estimates based on your preferences. Want to know how much more granite countertops will cost than formica? We’ll show you.
For most Americans, home equity makes up over half of their total assets. Using home equity is usually the most affordable way to access funds for projects and other big expenses. But what’s the right amount to access without driving up your interest rate? If a home loan doesn't work for you, what are your other options? We're here to help.
If you live in California, a Realm Advisor is available to help guide you through the entire renovation process from start to finish. We'll hand select up to 3 vendors who are fit for your project and make the introductions.

For any home renovation project, one of the biggest considerations is cost. Many factors contribute to a project’s overall budget, from design to materials to labor. Hidden pitfalls and unexpected issues that arise mid-renovation can also be costly. Getting accurate pricing information is critical to setting a realistic budget and achieving your home renovation goals.
For most of us, our home isn’t simply a place to live – it’s our largest investment. However, when it’s time to remodel or improve our homes, knowing which projects will yield the best bang for our buck can be complicated and ambiguous. What’s worse, there are some expensive projects that may not provide any financial benefits at all.
